And the Catalan club president continued: “Xavi’s return will mark a day of difference in the history of the club. This is an unprecedented presentation for a coach. I have never seen the fans with this enthusiasm before.”

“The credit for this goes to Xavi. He is a man of this house and this club, who has worked so hard to become a mark in this institution. It is a happy day for the Barcelona fans we need.”

Laporta concluded, “Welcome Xavi and his family home. It’s a very exciting day. Long live Barcelona, ​​long live Catalonia.”
